Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Kent is known as The Garden of England: it has traditional English villages and pubs, beautiful sandy beaches as well as notable landmarks like Canterbury Cathedral and Dover Castle.

We are on the outskirts of a small village and only 5 mins from Sandwich, a beautiful medieval town. We are only an hour away from London by train, allowing you to visit the capital easily from your rural base. We are only 24 miles from France and with frequent ferries between Dover and Calais, you will also be able to visit northern France from here. If you're interested in nightlife or shopping, there are nearby opportunities in Canterbury and Thanet, only 20 mins away from us. There are also numerous local activities for adults and children alike: golf, swimming, hiking, jet skis etc. You'll definitely find that there is something for everyone in Kent.

There is public transport available locally but a car is advised.
